For trekkers visiting Tanzania the biggest attraction is Mt Kilimanjaro – the subject of Hemingway. Its beautiful and diverse ecosystems are surpassed only by the breathtaking views from the summit. Climbing to the ‘rooftop of Africa’ is a highlight of any visit to Tanzania and can be achieved by seasoned trekkers to reasonably fit first-timers. ‘Kili’ isn’t the only choice trekkers have in the north of Tanzania. From the dramatic scenery of Mt Meru to the rolling hills of the Ngorongoro Crater Highlands and the active Oldonyo Lengai rising out of the Great Rift Valley, there is a trek or hike to suit every adventurous traveller.
Short wilderness walks enhance a safari by allowing a relationship to develop between flora, fauna and visitor – true learning in its rawest and ideal environment.
Whether trekking with local porters who have been born and raised in the shadow of Kilimanjaro or navigating your way from village to village in the highlands with loaded donkeys, trekking and hiking in Tanzania is a challenge to cherish – a ‘must do’ life experience.
